The project will treat 1.4 million gpd of water from a new well and three existing wells
Construction is underway for three new iron removal water treatment facilities in Bayville, N.J. The project will treat 1.4 million gal of water per day from a new well, as well as three existing wells.
The new treatment systems are a result of a recent Township Council meeting where residents complained of taste and odor problems. Consequently, the $12 million project will be funded by Aqua New Jersey to address high levels of iron, aluminum and radionuclides. The project is scheduled to be complete in July 2019.
“Aqua New Jersey’s top priority is to deliver safe, reliable drinking water and wastewater services to our customers,” said Aqua New Jersey President John Hildabrant. “We have taken on an aggressive schedule to complete this project to benefit our Bayville customers to continue to provide them with high quality drinking water.”
In response, the township has pledged to speed up Aqua’s application to construct the filter and hired its own engineer to test the water quality, as reported by Jersey Shore Online.
